on for this president. joining me now is political strategist angela rye. thank you both for being with us. >> thank you, reverend al. >> jarret, let me go to you first. tax fairness is a big part of what the president wants to get done. take a look at this. there are many middle class households that are actually paying a higher tax rate than households that make over a million dollars a year because they don't get most of their money from investments. will the president's policies change this problem? >> they will and they already are, to some extent. but there's more to be done there, just like the president just said. in the deal that ended the fiscal cliff, the tax rate at least for folks at the very top of the income scale, above $450,000, on capital gains and dividends, capital gains is what you get when you sell an appreciated stock. its value goes up. those are called capital gains. 20% is already below the tax rate that folks at the top of the scale pay on their earnings. so the president is saying there's a lot more room there to close out some of those loopholes and deductions. you mentioned
latino and angela rye is director of impact and a political strategist. welcome to both of you. maria, if i can start with you, what do you think the president is hoping to achieve by hosting such a range of organizations and companies to discuss this issue? >> martin, what the president recognizes is comprehensive immigration reform will take all efforts, all hands on deck. it's going to be grassroots, labor, business, and the only way he can do that is make sure everybody is on board and very clear on what the request is at hand. but more importantly, the fact that he was able to get in one day not only labor but he was also able to get business around the same table during these discussions demonstrates business recognizes they need to move fast on immigration because his window of time is short to pass this legislation. >> angela, today speaker john boehner and leader eric cantor were both asked if they plan to vote for senator marco rubio's broad plan supported by senate democrats. see if you can find a straight answer from either man. listen to this. >> i want to applaud senator
me now is richard wolffe and angela. thank you both for coming on the show tonight. >> thank you. >> it's a hard sell but republicans seem to crumble on a bunch of these issues. what's going on? >> they are picking fights they cannot win. they are picking fights about defense secretary who is always going to have enough votes. yes, they mess around with him. he was always going to get confirmed. it's a bit like the sequester. they have to cave. the pressure is too intense watching this unfold. medicaid dollars, really, are you going to have governors with the supreme court saying you have a choice. governors are going to turn down dollars that make them more popular. they are not picking smart fights here. that leads to a bigger question. will they ever break out of what bobby jindal call the stupid party? that's the thing they are facing right now. >> angela, you work the hill. you know it better than most people in this town. you were there in 2010 when the tea party movement was at its height and had a lot of strength. salon says that not only do the republicans seem to be cav
strategist angela ragg. is the president overreacting? let's just say rand paul is spot-on. john nichols, is the president overreacting? >> he absolutely is not overreacting. the sequester is austerity. it is -- it's not slowing the rate of growth. our population is growing. our needs are growing. if you slow down the amount of spending you've got at a time when you have growth and population, you are making severe cuts. and the sequester is really the first installment on an austerity agenda that poses huge threats according to government and private sector analyses to our abolishmeemployment rate an potential for growth. the president is not lying nor is he being historionic or overboard. >> i don't know what the president strategy is, but it looks to me like there is not one. they're saying different things and reacting on different points and none of them make sense. when you talk about sequestration or across the board cuts, we're talking about things that impact the lives of real people. they want to see small government. well, small government doesn't work when you have a large po
as we have a result. but before that let's bring in our panel, angela rye, political strategist and principal of impact strategies, karen finney, former dnc communications director and ari melber, correspondent for "the nation." welcome to all of you. chuck hagel is about to be confirmed after the next secretary of defense after 18 republicans voted to move his confirmation to a final vote. what exactly did this fight accomplish in your view? >> well, we got to learn the truth about the grudge match between john mccain and some in the republican party and chuck hagel. john mccain laid it out for us pretty clearly when he said that it was, you know, some of the criticisms that hagel had of president bush that angered a lot in the republican party. i don't think it gets any clearer than that. >> that's very helpful and very clear. thank you, karen. ari, let's talk about the friends of hamas because while there were many bogus charges leveled at chuck hagel, friends of hamas may symbolize them at the best. this was a story delivered by thee the editor-at-large of breitbart media. h
cameron said he will be missed as a spiritual leader for millions. >>> and from angela merkel -- he had to make a difficult decision. just some of the reaction that's coming in today. joining mess is rome bureau chief claudio lavagna, and george weigel from washington. claudio, i want to start with you. we have part of the pope's statement. in it he said that both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength in the last few months has deteriorated to me to the extend i have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry. with hindsight being 20/20, had there been any rumors that something like this was coming? >> reporter: we possibly benedict xvi even hinted at it himself, he said if he felt his strength and his body wasn't up to speed to comply with the duties that were -- that are expected of a pontiff, and very heavy duties like traveling around, attending ceremonies, working nonstop. at 85, that's tiring for everybody, for any man his age, let alone a pontiff and the pope and leader of 1 billion catholics around the world, but nobody really believed that wou
to the last drop. >>> david cameron says he'll be semised as a spiritual leader to millions. angela merkel -- the italian prime minister says he is greatly shaken. claudio levagne is covering the. >> reporter: it came as a major shock here. the only time that a pope resigned was back in 1294, the fifth to resign, and that didn't go so well with public sentiment. the recent ig nails was called the great refusal, and even featured in dante's inferno "the divine comedy." received more positive reactions this time. a cardinal said they admired his courage, and it does take courage to step down as a leader of a 1.2 billion catholics around the world, but pope benedict xiv is ed it himself, i don't have the strength to carry on all the duties that are required by the pope and the pontiff. he just wants a younger pope with more stamina and more strength to take over. chris? >> claudio, thank you so much, from rome. >>> two senate committees now plan to hold hearings because of the growing controversy over president obama's unmanned drone program. it's the democrats who are worried about the balan
